After nearly three years at Baker Park, the Jamestown CARTS bus hub is moving back downtown to Second Street in front of the historic, newly renovated Gateway Center Train Station.
Beginning on Monday, buses will again line up in front of the train station for passengers utilizing CARTS city and rural route services.
"Six years ago, my team and I committed to CARTS being a part of the historic train station site in order to better serve the CARTS system and to aid the train station in securing federal transportation grant dollars for its reconstruction," said Chautauqua County Executive Greg Edwards. "I am pleased to announce that CARTS services will now be available in front of the train station and I would like to thank everyone involved in the project for making this a reality."
The CARTS?bus hub will begin service on Monday at the renovated Gateway Center train station on West Second Street in downtown Jamestown.

In place of the old bus shelters, a designated nonsmoking passenger waiting area has been established in the foyer of the east entrance of the train station. The passenger waiting area will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
